Well they put the cap high enough where it doesn't really matter i guess they just did it to make ppl. feel better about bowling with higher average ppl. It still doesn't matter last year we had a guy a team that kicked everyone's butt the one guy shot a 700 almost every week and a few 800's.

I start my season tonight with my Thursday night mens league,and start my other two(Wed.mens, and a mixed league with my wife) next week and I'm pretty geeked about it. Of course I have big expectations of myself this year, some personal goals I hope to attain. I can't wait to get started. laugh

Hope everyone is having a good week. Busy week at work here.

Sunday night showed some progress and some maddening inconsistency.
Afternoon saw a 234, 176 and 208 for a 618 series.
Night ran out a 184, 126 (??) and 221 for a 531 series. Threw 2 pocket splits the first game to lose the deuce, and simply lost it the second game... throwing a six pack variety of different splits. Good to bounce back some the third game... but yikes!

Overall, starting to get closer... but need to focus a bit better and adjust.

Cheers.

Tonight was a good night for me (671) but a GREAT night team wise. The team together shot - 671 681 778 537 for 2667 which is 225 average team wise. We annihilated the other team and won 18 out of 20 points. Its a great team night when a 671 is the 2nd lowest series for the team. LOL

Nice bowling Renonbbs,

We started last night and did very well as a team too taking all games and totals. We were 50 some pins down entering the 10th frame in the last game and rallied to pull it out, which makes it fun.
I started out so-so because I missed a few spares, I need to correct that..no excuses for missing spares. I had a 202, 197..then the third game I fell apart after getting four splits, three in a row at one point. That will kinda take the wind out of your sails,....
But team wise we did great, so in this early season we are undefeated wink

Good/Ok/Bad

http://www.bowlsk.com/games/view-series.html?series=199765

On the plus side, in the first game, I needed 2 strikes and count to get us 2 bonus points (winning by 150+ pins). In the second game, I needed the first strike and count to get us 1 bonus pin (winning by 100+ pins).

On the down side, after next week, my average will go from last year's book of 203 to whatever it ends up at, currently 217. No more free handicap.

Nice bowling, Recon, Tim, and cgeorg.

My one team had a great night on Wednesday. We rolled series of 735, 703, 670, 610 (sub), and 569, for a total of 3287, or 219 average. We were bowling against last year's 2nd place team. Even after giving them about a 100 pins per game, we still swept them all 3 games. And, my 703 was enough to win 3 out of 4 brackets, and put a down payment on a new pair of SST 8's.

Thursday was a different story. This was the first night of my PBA Experience League. I expected we would be bowling on Chameleon, but was not sure if it would be the new 39 foot pattern for the 2009/2010 season or last year's 40 foot pattern. It was the new 39 foot pattern. I was surprised to see how different the graph was on the left and right side, and how different it played from the old pattern. The old pattern had some hold in the middle and I was able to swing my Particle Ogre 12 and out. Not the new pattern. I moved as deep as 15, and ran out of approach while struggling to keep the ball off the headpin. First game score was 145.

The second game, I switched to the Orange Ogre, moved out to 5, and had a good look to the pocket for about a game and a half. Second game score was 234. The third and fourth game, the shot deteriorated, and I struggled to get lined up again, rolling games of 173 and 132 to finish the 4-game set.

I was bummed with my performance, but somehow managed to win my match point for all but the last game. Not that it made me feel better, but somebody suggested that when they first put down this new version of the Chameleon pattern for the pros, not a single lefty qualified.

My other teammates are right handed. One did better than expected. The other left scratching his head like me. We have 4 weeks on each pattern, so I am hoping to do better each week.

Nice bowling cgeorg! As long as you keep your average at that 217 or so all season I don't think it will make much of a difference...

Tomorrow my lone league finally starts bowling. Of course I find out yesterday that one of our bowlers isn't going to bowl now and once again we are short a bowler and that's only if another bowler doesn't back out. Says he can't afford it since he would be shelling out $40-50 a night because of buying beer. Of course easy solution is don't drink or drink that much. Oh well, will have to see what transpires. Too bad my brother hasn't been released to do any physical activity since he got hurt at work in January.
